Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that Makhadzi has reportedly moved on from Master KG and is now in the arms of a wealthy businessman.

Several local publications have reported that Makhadzi is dating Zwivhuya Nelwamondo, the CEO at Lwams Africa. The man is more popularly known as Zwi Lwams.

Lwams Africa has been sponsoring several of Makhadzi’s recent gigs. In addition, the Venda artist and businessman have been snapped in the same areas all too often. Social media users did the maths and concluded that the pair are dating.

From all the pics that the couple are snapping, it seems Lwams is spoiling Khadzi just as she deserves.

However, given the scrutiny that her previous relationship with Master KG garnered, it’s understandable why the muso has chosen to keep this relationship on the low.
